So I got my hands on most of my old tower again, but I am missing a few essential components. There is no case, no PSU, memory or CPU cooler. It is quite the weird situation, I must admit. Here are the components that I actually have:
CPU: Core i5-3570''K
GPU: GeForce GTX 770
Motherboard: Asus PBZ77-V LE
And I have to hard drives that will suit me fine for the time being.
My budget is $300, though I do not want to go completely overboard with this stuff. Could I get decent equipment for less, you think?
I would prefer a quiet case/cooler, assuming that the increased heat does not negatively effect the performance of the rig. I remember people raging about the Antec 900 case back in the day, but that is the extent of my case knowledge. On the PSU front, would 650W be enough or should I stretch it to 700 to be sure? For the moment I do not have any plans to overclock the system.
I did have a look at the Tested build from last year - the $1000 one - and those components seem decent, but I am unsure if they still are up to snuff.
Any suggestions on what to get would be greatly appreciated!
